Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Premier League games of the weekend.

As we prepare for another matchday of the Premier League season, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 16 of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.

Goals likely on both sides when Tottenham take on Leeds

Tottenham come into their next game on the back of an unexpected EFL Cup defeat against Nottingham Forest.

The Spurs meet Leeds, who’ve claimed back-to-back wins in their last two league games.

We expect Tottenham to push for the win in their last pre-World Cup game. Given their attacking form, we expect Antonio Conte’s men to find enough goalscoring chances.

However, Leeds’ recent goal numbers suggest they won’t shy away from putting pressure on their hosts’ defence line. The Peacocks will most likely find the back of the net at least once due to Tottenham’s clear defensive struggles.

Back Brighton to beat Aston Villa

Brighton are enjoying fantastic form ahead of the World Cup break, beating Chelsea, Wolves, and Arsenal in their last three matches.

We expect the Seagulls to continue their run against Aston Villa this weekend.

Villa have shown promising signs of attacking improvement since Unai Emery’s arrival.

However, their defensive problems, combined with Brighton’s incredible attacking form, convince us that the hosts will win the game on Sunday.

Don’t expect goals when Forest host Crystal Palace

Nottingham Forest stunned Tottenham by eliminating them from the EFL Cup midweek.

They will return to the Premier League to lock horns with Crystal Palace on Saturday, hoping to escape the league’s rock bottom ahead of the World Cup break.

Palace will most likely have the upper hand in the upcoming game due to their recent solid performances.

However, their attacking displays in away games suggest they will push for a smash-and-grab win against Forest.

On the other hand, Forest have shown a clear trend of trading fewer goalscoring opportunities for fewer conceded goals lately. We expect them to successfully repel most of Palace’s attacks while struggling to find the back of the net themselves.
